Configuring the access rights for a limited administrator

If you add an account for a limited administrator, you must also specify the administrator's access rights. Limited administrator accounts that are not granted any access rights are created in a disabled state and the limited administrator will not be able to log on to the management server.


Reporting rights are required to integrate Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager with Symantec Protection Center version 1. Ensure that you grant reporting rights to any limited administrators who use Protection Center version 1 to access the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console. For more information, see the Help for Protection Center version 1.

To configure the access rights for a limited administrator

  1. In the console, click Admin.

  2. On the Admin page, click Administrators.

  3. Select the limited administrator.

    You can also configure the access rights when you create a limited administrator account.

    See Adding an administrator account.

  4. Under Tasks, click Edit Administrator.

  5. On the Access Rights tab, check an option, and then click the corresponding button to set the access rights. Click Help for more information.

  6. If you want to authorize the limited administrator to create only non-shared policies for a location, check Only allow location-specific policy editing.

  7. Click OK.
